1963 Ford 2000 4 cylinder gas

Four years ago I paid 3500 for this tractor,it came to me with a box blade,bush hog,disc,plow,and boom pole.Since I've had it I've tuned it up,changed all the fluids,rebuilt the carburator,put a lift cover kit in,rebuilt the hydraulic pump,rewired it,installed a 12v conversion kit,and replaced the front tires.The tractor had already been converted to 12v,but it was poorly done,homemade brackets that caused a lot of buzzing of the sheet metal,etc.Also replaced the oil pan gasket as it was a half quart low after every use.Oil consumtion dropped to almost zero.Replaced cracked exhaust manifold elbow.The previous owner bought a 68 acre farm to provide a second place for his cattle to run on in 1973,1 1/2 years later he found this tractor stuck to the axles in a bottom he hadn't been in.He called the seller of the property who told him it was his tractor,and offered it to settle the dispute they were having over the airconditoning unit in the farmhouse.He moved the 2000 to the barn where it sat for ten years.He then had someone replace the wheels that were rusted thru from being in the mud and tires with used ones,paint it,and get it running.He then moved it to his rural general merchandise store to bush hog the acre or two behind it.It sat out in the weather there for seven or eight years getting little use,but having batteries and other parts stolen,until a store employee that lived nearby offered to keep it in his shed,where it stayed but for occasional use at the store until I bought it.I have close to five grand in the tractor and it's equiptment now plus the time doing the repairs,and could use new rear tires yet.Despite having too much money and time in it I'm happy with it.It's been fun working on it,and it's smooth and quiet doing the light bush hogging on the thirteen acres here,and maintaning our long driveway,just about like riding a blow dryer.It shows few signs from the negleget and misuse of the original owner that left it stuck,and didn't even think to mention it to the buyer of his farm at the time of purchase.It's pampered now in my heated basement during the winter,under a carport in the mowing season.Thinking of getting a grooming mower for it so it gets used more often doing my lawn.
